SANRAL Southern Region Community Development Specialist Xoliswa Chubana addressing stakeholders in Bedford.


Much needed jobs will be created when a special maintenance road project from the R63/N10 intersection to Bedford kicks off in the neighbouring towns of Bedford and Cookhouse in the Eastern Cape. The project, valued at R155 million, will create job opportunities for community members and SMMEs in the local municipalities of Blue Crane and Raymond Mhlaba. The project includes a training budget allocated to upskill local SMMEs, especially emerging contractors in the lower grades as determined by the Construction Industry Development Board.
